I know it is a marketing trick, but scale means scale. As a mathematician I othat there is a difference between 1/100 and 1/87. The various other names we use can be muddled up, although I don't like it, it is only a name.
I ordered what I thought wre some /100 scale road vehicles from China. They arrived today and they were NOREV 1/87 scale. Very nice, very good price, and I can use them, but not 1/100 scale. The description was very clever as it actually said '1/100 TT HO', so I was expecting they might be 1/87 scale.
The positive thing is that it is worth taking a punt on Chinese models, these were NOREV so good quality, and ideal for anyone modelling HO scale.
